. romney mentioned jobs ten times more than obama. so the distinction there. but i think it was a solid, solid speech, but those speeches beforehand from former president bill clinton and michelle, that was a tough act to follow. >> they don't have burden of being in office. joe can come out swinging, clinton can come out swinging. they do the dirty work. the president has to appear presidential and take the high road. he didn't want to get down -- he took a few good, solid body shots at mitt romney, but it wasn't the full frontal that i think you saw in other cases here. he did focus heavily on foreign policy. that was, i think, a rebuttal to romney not mentioning afghanistan, the war at all in his speech first time in 52 years, war has not been in the speech. that's why it is so heavy. again, let the analyses continue all day today. right. be sure to join our active online discussion about the democratic national convention, do so on our facebook page, wnnfans.com. >>> now to the bizarre turn of events for one airline passenger. the man was flying home to texas to celebrate his 29th b
